Winnet Centre of Excellence

Winnet Centre of Excellence (WCE) is an international network of researchers for the purpose of doing and promoting teaching, policy making and research on Gender, Innovation and Sustainalbe Development.
This initiative is possible thanks to the cooperation with the organization WINNET Sverige. Our activities are financed by the Swedish Institute under the project TP Winnet BSR (Thematic Partnership Winnet Baltic Sea Region,

Winnet BSR, Swedish Institute: 2013 - 2016). WCE has been established at the Faculty of Economics and Management, University of Szczecin by M. Hozer-Koćmiel and S. Misiak-Kwit in 2014. 

We combine theory and practice by the realization of the principle of Quadruple Helix, according to which public administration, business, non-governmental organizations and academic community should be simultaneously involved in improving the social and economic situation of women.

So far, Women Resources Centre model has existed as an institution created in Sweden in the eighties in order to activate and strengthen the position of women on the labor market. We have created WCE by adding Academia and researchers as 
a members of such institutions.

Members of WCE have already conducted a number of joint-projects, including:

•Thematic Partnership Winnet Baltic Sea Region, Winnet BSR, Swedish Institute (2013 - 2016) - One of the aim is to create the BSR Partnership Platform for Gender, Innovation and Sustainable Development;

•Going abroad, South Baltic Programme (2011 - 2012) - Project aimed to strengthen the position of female entrepreneurs with micro-businesses;

•FEM - Female Entrepreneurs Meetings in the Baltic Sea Region, Baltic Sea Region Interreg III B (August 2004 - July  2007) - The aim of FEM was to strengthen the structures that support women’s entrepreneurship through co-operation and the exchange of knowledge and best practices;

•W.IN.NET Europe, Interreg IIIC (2006 - 2008) - The aim was to create WINNET Europe - the European Association of Women Resource Centres;

•Women In Net 8, WINNET8, Interreg IVC (2010 - 2011) - The objective was to contribute to regional growth by improving women’s participation in the labour market, focusing on: the lack of women in innovation and technology, the lack of women in entrepreneurship.
